The name of the responsibility is negligence due to falls of patients in intensive care unit. The liability may occur due to the medical staff that forget to put the brakes on the beds, put in a low position, the call light within reach and personnel items easily reach to every patient. These falls can bring a lot of injuries to patients and fractures (loss of continuity of bone tissue. It ranges from a small crack to total bone fracture displacement of the two ends of the bone fracture), trauma to the skull and face (injuries to the skull and face are especially important, since the intensity of the shock can affect the central nervous system (CNS), located within the cranial cavity), trauma to the extremities (as a result

Regardless how much time is left in the shift,I 'd start by going over to the client who is injured and assist him. I would ensure that the client has clear airways and can breath. I would call for 9-1-1 and staff assistance. While emergency services are on the way I 'd look to see if there are any hazards in the area for us or the client. It 's important to stay calm and quiet with the client while we wait for emergency services to arrive. At this point ensuring the patient is calm and safe verses asking details of the event (until emergency services arrives) is key. Otherwise the client may get upset or go into shock over the event again.
Look for signals that indicate changes in the level of consciousness, trouble breathing, and apparent injuries and conditions.
With a open wound that is bleeding a medical assistant can try and control the bleeding. Remove any obvious dirt or debris from the wound. Don 't remove large or deeply embedded objects. Don 't probe the wound or attempt to clean it yet. The first thing to do is to stop the bleeding until the EMS arive.

Great post! I think with seizure, safety intervention is a must because you do not know when it can happen and you want to protect the person that is having a seizure from any injuries. It is good to educate the family or anyone about seizures and what to do if someone you know encounter it. When someone is having a seizure especially tonic-clonic seizure, you must ease the person to the floor because you do not want them to fall down and hit their head, which can cause more damage. Turn the person gently onto their side so they can breathe, put a pillow or jacket under their head, loosen ties or anything around their neck that can cause them unable to breath, and if the seizure last more than 5 minutes, call 911 right away. It is
As three men roll out of the front seat of the EMT with sirens blaring, I know this one is a code red emergency, or in other words, life threatening. My protocol tells me to stand with the rest of the nurses as the men and women wheel in a pulley to the front entrance, but my experience tells me to take any precious seconds before they arrive to clean out an empty room as fast as possible. I do. The sounds of labored breathing and Velcro straps from the restraints ring in my ears as the man is settled into the bed. The sheets that I took little time in arranging are now stained with crimson blood and the backs of nurses and physicians now block my sight. With the hallway cleared, I offer the old man in room 17 a coffee, just to offer a little
Spinal immobilization is commonly used in Emergency Medical Services. This process is used when the patient has suffered a trauma significant enough to lead EMS personnel to believe that there may be a spinal cord injury. This consists of securing the patient to a rigid, long spine board, placing a cervical collar and securing the head. Beginning with the effectiveness of spinal immobilization, and leading into doing no harm and the possibility of agitating a spinal cord injury. Finally, answers to the argument on back boards being uncomfortable are provided. Ultimately, in order to ensure the safety of all trauma patients’ spinal cords, the trauma patients should be immobilized.
What type of shock is John exhibiting signs of? [1 mark] Give a rationale for your answer and relate this to four  of John’s clinical symptoms and observations. [4 marks for clinical symptoms & 4 marks for observations]
In Stage I of shock, when low blood flow (perfusion) is first detected, a number of systems are activated in order to maintain/restore perfusion. The result is that the heart beats faster, the blood vessels throughout the body become slightly smaller in diameter, and the kidney works
